Products & Services

GWS Middle East FZE is fully licensed by the Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority to provide international corporate services and to offer UAE company registration. GWS offers you a broad range of services:

RAK Offshore Company Registration

GWS supports you to incorporate your offshore company in the UAE within 2-4 working days. We incorporate your RAK offshore company and provide you with ongoing advice – which continues after the formation. We are delighted to offer our clients this simple and totally confidential UAE Offshore Company Formation. The confidentiality is not coupled with a tax haven image and, depending on your type of business, this is a crucial advantage, despite the positive fact that RAK is tax and VAT free.

RAK Free Trade Zone Company

Ras Al Khaimah Free Trade Zone (RAK FTZ) is one of the fastest growing and most cost effective free zones in the Middle East. The RAK Free Trade Zone company is an onshore company, with which arise dozens of possibilities of advantageous company structures. Registered companies are exempted from all corporate or income tax. GWS is proud to offer our clients incorporation within 7 working days.

The difference

The RAK Investment Authority (RAKIA) launched the concept of the International Business Company in January 2007 and has since become one of the most popular offshore destinations in the region. Offshore companies are exempted from all corporate and income taxes and are ideal for international business without physical presence and active business in the UAE. 
Contrary to the RAK offshore company, the RAK Free Trade Zone company is allowed to conduct business in the UAE via an local agent. The free trade zone entity is a cost-effective investment destination, in order to maintain an office or warehouse in the UAE. A free trade zone is a special area of RAK, where normal trade barriers, such as taxes, tariffs and quotas, are eliminated and bureaucratic requirements are lowered, in order to attract new business and foreign investments. With free zone companies it is possible to benefit from over 40 double taxation agreements in the UAE and to receive an investor visa/residency.


Nominee Services RAK

GWS provides our clients full nominee services, in order to enjoy the utmost confidentiality. The aspiration to acquire complete privacy or anonymity is, in fact, a key reason why a nominee service or a full managed company is the best solution for your RAK offshore company registration.

Dubai Bank Accounts and other Bank Accounts

GWS supports you, not only with your RAK offshore company registration, but also to find the ideal offshore bank for your business activities according to your expectations – with the services you expect and the tariffs you expect for your corporate offshore account in the UAE. Additionally, we work with a broad range of international banks, for example in Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Austria, Latvia, Malta, Mauritius, Seychelles, St. Vincent, Antigua, Hong Kong or Singapore.

UAE Residency and Visa

GWS would be glad to assist and support you with your visa or residency application (only available for FTZ companies).
